How do I queue files instead of simultaneously copying them with Windows?

"Windows does not allow me to copy multiple files...
Well ofcourse it does when the files are in the same folder however it fails miserably when the files are in seperate folders.
Is there any utility tool that would allow me to keep adding the selected file to some kind of clipboard and then paste all of them to the destination?
Or does any other tool exist on similar lines?"

"TeraCopy - Copy your files faster and easier

TeraCopy is a compact program designed to copy and move files at the maximum possible speed, providing the user a lot of features:

Copy files faster. TeraCopy uses dynamically adjusted buffers to reduce seek times. Asynchronous copy speeds up file transfer between two physical hard drives.
Pause and resume file transfers. Pause copy process at any time to free up system resources and continue with a single click.
Error recovery. In case of copy error, TeraCopy will try several times and in the worse case just skips the file, not terminating the entire transfer.
Interactive file list. TeraCopy shows failed file transfers and lets you fix the problem and recopy only problem files.
Shell integration. TeraCopy can completely replace Explorer copy and move functions, allowing you work with files as usual.
Full Unicode support.
Windows 7 64-bit support."

"I use PikyBasket - which is a virtual basket in which you can collect files. Then you can copy or move the files in the basket in your destination folder.

I like the freeware older version - Piky Basket 2.0 build 21. There is a newer version also which is available here."
